“I relate to Gale more. I feel like my decisions would’ve been similar to his decisions in those situations. I’d be trying to figure out a way to stop [the Games] or fight back.”
I love that he can relate to the character in such a way that he feels he would have made the same choices. When you can connect to a character in this way, I feel it is something the audience can see and connect with as we watch the film.

As the Huffington Post points out, the MTV Movie Awards put two fandoms right up against each other – those of us that love The Hunger Games and wanted them to do well in their nominations, and the legions of fans supporting Harry Potter. Then there’s a bunch of fans that love BOTH.
The Huffington Post decided to do a bit of a mashup and ask the question – what would happen if the characters from The Hunger Games were sorted into Hogwarts houses?
You can click here to see what they decided, but at least for Katniss, Peeta and Gale, this is how they see it:
Slytherin might get a bad rap, but hear us out on this one — it’s not always a bad thing. As a tribute, she’s ultra-focused on survival, a classic Slytherin trait. If she were a Gryffindor, she might sacrifice herself in the Games so that another tribute could survive (the way Harry was willing to die for the good of others in the final scenes of Deathly Hallows). Instead, she’s a fierce competitor with a deep instinct to survive. Continue reading
Liam Hemwsworth is on the cover of the May issue of Prestige, Hong Kong’s lifestyle magazine. This morning they shared their interview with the actor about how his life has changed since The Hunger Games, what made him decide to become an actor, filming The Expendables 2, Australian actors’ long association with Hollywood, what he has coming up next in his career and more. (note: that is not Liam’s Twitter name – he doesn’t have one)
Here’s an excerpt from the interview.
How have you been dealing with all the attention your life and everything that surrounds it has been bringing you?
I haven’t really changed that much. I still do the things that I’ve always done. It’s just that I’m at a different level now in terms of my career. I’m able to meet extremely talented filmmakers and writers and directors – everyone in the business. I’m just in a different position than I’ve ever been in. But, you know, my personal life hasn’t changed. I still go surfing and hang out with friends. I just feel very lucky to be where I am and to be able to make movies.
There has been an enormous buzz around the world following The Hunger Games. What’s it like being caught up in it all?
Pretty much the whole of March I’ve been travelling, doing press everywhere. It’s been awesome. I’ve never promoted something as big as this. So it’s been pretty cool. As an actor I always look for things I relate to in one way or another, or things that are different. And this is definitely all that and has a huge fan base behind it already. I’ve never been a part of something like that before so it has been interesting. Continue reading
‘The Hunger Games‘ hunk Liam Hemsworth is looking handsome on the May 2012 cover of Hong Kong’s ’Prestige‘ magazine. I’m loving the bow tie Liam!
My hunting partner, the one person who has my back. There’s nothing to do but move forward, killing whoever comes into our path.
